A New York and New Jersey Lawyer Who Represents Policyholders and Beneficiaries in Life Insurance Denial Cases

The New York Times published an article about tracking down life insurance policies that somehow got lost in the shuffle during the insured’s life, so that the beneficiaries didn’t know where to find them or were even unaware of their existence.

The article focuses on unclaimed life insurance funds that each state maintains. For instance, “New York has received $400,287,736 in unclaimed life insurance property since 2000 and paid out $64,772,228.” You could say the article focuses more on the larger picture of unclaimed life insurance policies and how they are addressed by state governments. Don’t forget, the states regulate insurance policies, not the federal government.

Now, to those readers looking for more practical advice on how to find a missing life insurance policy, I’ve previously blogged on that topic. There, you’ll find a link to an article that identifies various steps you can take.
